xr400 stator for baja designs kit?

Recommended Posts

No the stock stator will work.

However if you want to upgrade the headlight bulb beyond 35W you will need to upgrade the stator though.

Don't be surprised if the 10 cell NiCd for the kit doesn't get charged properly with the stock stator. Unless you leave the headlight off most of the time. With 35W headlight, tail light (dual on some kits/conversions) and the losses in converting from AC to DC, there isn't much extra to charge the battery with -- the voltage will be down around the 11 or 12V. Note that a 10 cell NiCd won't charge at 12V, it needs to be at the 14.5V (or so) regulator setting to take a charge, which won't happen unless you reduce your loading (ie headlight off) or increase your power input (ie better stator).
